After a century of change, West Park remains one of Allentown’s bastions of community spirit, as intended by grand design. Visitors continue to relax, socialize, embrace nature, or enjoy band concerts as they have from opening day in the early 1900s. As a guardian of the park, the West Park Civic Association seeks to preserve the value and symbolism the park provides to our neighborhood and city as previous generations have and hopefully future generations will.
The park serves as the nucleus of our organization’s functions, missions, and endeavors; and for this reason its preservation is paramount. Further, the preservation, vitality, and quality of life of the surrounding neighborhoods are also directly linked to the preservation of the park. The West Park Civic Association continues to evolve by encouraging new membership and embracing new ideas that support this vision of preservation and continue the mutually beneficial exchanges between park, neighborhood, and city. We welcome all to join our organization and help contribute to therealization of our goals.
